Isolated Congenital Left Ventricular Diverticulum in Adults.

Jung JC, Oh HC, Kim KH - Korean J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg (2015)

Bottom Line: Here, we report the case of a 33-year-old woman who had suffered from recurrent transient ischemic attacks for 6 years.The diverticulum was successfully obliterated by cardiopulmonary bypass.We suggest that isolated congenital left ventricular diverticulum can be easily corrected with a low surgical risk by patch repair and plication techniques.

ABSTRACT
Isolated congenital left ventricular diverticulum is a rare cardiac malformation. Here, we report the case of a 33-year-old woman who had suffered from recurrent transient ischemic attacks for 6 years. Preoperative cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography angiography revealed a diverticulum near the apex. The diverticulum was successfully obliterated by cardiopulmonary bypass. We suggest that isolated congenital left ventricular diverticulum can be easily corrected with a low surgical risk by patch repair and plication techniques.
